Linux Mobile Makes Comeback

Llast week, it was announced that Nokia‘s MeeGo team—the same team responsible for the revered OS used on the N9—walked away from the company. Most of the Nokia team have gone into business for themselves, creating a company called Jolla Ltd. to continue bringing MeeGo powered devices to the market.

Jolla Ltd. is a Finland based smartphone company which continues the great work that Nokia started with MeeGo. The Jolla team is formed by directors and core professionals from Nokia’s MeeGo N9 organisation, together with some of the best minds working on MeeGo in the communities.

The LinkedIn page of this new company says “Nokia created something wonderful – the world’s best smartphone product. It deserves to be continued, and we will do that together with all the bright and gifted people contributing to the MeeGo success story.
Together with international investors and partners, Jolla Ltd. will design, develop and sell new MeeGo based smartphones. The Jolla team consists of a substantial number of MeeGo’s core engineers and directors, and is aggressively hiring the top MeeGo talent to contribute to the next generation smartphone production.”

MeeGo project provides a Linux-based, open source software platform for the next generation of computing devices. The MeeGo project is hosted by The Linux Foundation. MeeGo was canceled in September 2011, in favor of Tizen.
